Sacred Gifts Exhibition Description
November 15, 2013 - May 10, 2014 at the Brigham Young University Museum of Art
"Sacred Gifts" features nearly two dozen beloved paintings of the life of Jesus Christ by three European master painters from the late-19th century. Most of these works have never before been on view in the United States, and are being loaned to the BYU Museum of Art under extraordinary circumstances from churches and museums in Germany, Sweden, Denmark and New York. "Sacred Gifts" explores and celebrates the many precious gifts represented by these outstanding portrayals of the Savior. The BYU Museum of Art invites patrons to partake of these sacred offerings and discover the miraculous gifts that have made the exhibition possible.

I am so grateful for this app. It allows for the spirit of Christ to be rekindled in me as I search for His character and countenance in these paintings.
Even though the exhibit is long gone, I'm so glad this app is still available. So much to learn here.
